George Carlin: Comedian Dead at 71

George Carlin

George Carlin, of the “seven words you can’t say on television” fame, died of heart failure Sunday. Carlin was admitted to St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica and died shortly before 6 pm, according to reports.

Carlin had a history of heart problems and was admitted after complaining of chest pains. He was 71.

He earned five Emmy nominations, as well as several gold records.

The comedian, who toured college campuses for years and made a name for himself using dirty language and delivering biting social commentaries, had released 22 solo albums and three bestselling books.

He finished a show at The Orleans in Las Vegas last week and was planning to take the month off to relax and work on a new book of essays and musings, Abraham said.

Carlin normally took summers off and was scheduled to begin touring again beginning with a July 20 performance at Humphrey’s Concerts By The Bay in San Diego. He had dates lined up through December, Abraham said.

“He was looking forward to it,” his publicist, Jeff Abraham said.

Carlin went to the hospital Sunday afternoon because “his heart just didn’t feel right,” the publicist said.

Carlin was famous for such observations as, “Why is it you park in a driveway and drive on parkway?”

“There are three ingredients in my comedy,” he said in a 1991 interview with the Los Angeles Times. “Those three things which wax and wane in importance are English language and wordplay; secondly, mundane, everyday observational comedy — dogs, cats and all that stuff; and thirdly, sociopolitical attitude comedy.”

According to some sources, Carlin’s observations, especially his political ones, seemed to have grown more bitter with age.

George Carlin, Rest in Peace.

Q: Anybody else see the outrage on the part of liberals at ABC because they had the ‘audacity’ to ask the Holy Messiah Obama slightly tougher questions than say ‘do you wear boxers or briefs’? Imagine for a second that John McCain had had a fundraiser for his campaign years ago with Timothy McVeigh. How is it unfair to ask Obama about his personal relationship with a DOMESTIC TERRORIST? Why are liberals angry over this?

A: People who are not secure in their positions do not like to be questioned. Those who are secure, encourage questioning because it gives them the opportunity to convince others.
–Answers, Yahoo.com

“Liberals enjoy claiming that they are intellectuals, thrilled to engage in a battle of wits. This, they believe, distinguishes them from conservatives, who are religious fanatics who react with impotent rage to opposing ideas.”
–Ann Coulter

“Get mad, then get over it.”
–Colin Powell

“”My contribution to the civility of the dialogue has been to get down and say, ‘You’re lying, and we’re going to call you on it.’ “
–Al Franken, MN senate candidate and talk radio host

“[T]he decision in the Florida election case may be ranked as the single most corrupt decision in Supreme Court history, because it is the only one that I know of where the majority justices decided as they did because of the personal identity and political affiliation of the litigants. This was cheating, and a violation of the judicial oath.”
–Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor

“I was very angry. I was angry for a period of two days.”
–Keith Olbermann, explaining to Bill Moyers his reaction upon reading in August of 2006 about Don Rumsfeld talking to the veterans and talking about how “every– everyone who was in opposition to the Iraq War policy, the so-called war on terror, even to some degree the Bush administration, was the equivalent in his mind to the Nazi appeasers of the 1930s.”

“Republicans had better worry. Angry people are motivated to get out to vote. If they can channel that anger into something constructive, they can literally upset the presidency.”
–Paul Weyrich, veteran conservative organizer

“I think a lot of people felt the media was giving a pass to Bush.”
–“Bill Scher, a 31-year old publicist who runs LiberalOasis.com

“Liberals believe that men–left to their own devices–are not to be trusted. They also believe in the goodness of government; a government composed of men. This paradox may help explain why many liberals are angry much of the time.”
–RE Bierce

“Sure, liberals still seethe from a doubtful election, an illegal war and political prosecutions. But there’s a genuine anger out there engendered by something rooted far deeper in the past: a quarter-century of callous right-wing tactics. Its purveyors now carping about liberal anger have no one to blame but themselves.”
–P.M. Carpenter, History News Network

“I thought liberalism was supposed to be all about tolerance and diversity and stuff. I guess that applies only to skin, but not to thought or ideas.”
–Fred Dooley, Real Debate Wisconsin

“Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.”
–Phyllis Diller

Okay, a confession: the last quote could apply to liberals or conservatives.
